GRWM: Casual look

Tuesdays are my days off uni so me and my friend planned to go to the cinema and Christmas markets in Manchester.

When I’m doing something casual like this I like to go for the more natural makeup look and comfy clothes. My hair just depends on how much it needs a wash (gross I know) and today it needed a wash very badly.

For my makeup I’ve gone for a natural brown shadow, my hair is in fishtail plaits, and I’m just wearing a t-shirt and dungaree dress.

Face products I used:

  • No7 Airbrush Away Pore Minimising Primer
  • PS strobing highlighting cream
  • No7 Stay perfect foundation
  • PS volumising mascara
  • No7 beautiful eyebrow sculpting pencil
  • MAC blusher (Desert Rose)
  • MAC eyeshadow (Charcoal Brown)
  • MUA cover and conceal
  • PS contour stick
  • Collection clear brow mascara
  • PS velvet matte lipstick crayon

Clothes:

  • ‘Run forest run’ Bubba Gump t-shirt
  • Topshop pinafore dress
  • Boohoo fedora hat

Jewellery:

  • Pandora leather bracelet & charm (worn as necklace)
  • Casio watch
  • Pandora rings (Aquamarine birthstone and flower)

So that was my first ever ‘get ready with me’. I’m not the best at makeup but I try and I’d like to try new things but I have to be careful with what foundation I use as my skin is acne prone.

If I could change anything it would be my eyebrows as they currently look like slugs but as you know I’m trying to grow them out so I need to leave them alone as much as I can regarding the plucking.

If you have any tips and tricks then I’d be happy to hear them.

My everyday makeup rountine

Everyone has their go-to makeup routine especially if they’re running late or are just doing something cas. Mine is for when I want to make an effort but don’t have a lot of time like in the morning before I go to uni.

I was always self conscious when not wearing makeup, but that’s because I had acne for my whole teenage life. I got rid of it last year due to some medication I was on which means I’m not scared of going out without makeup on now, however I still do just because it makes me feel better and I like to use it.

I like the natural look so I don’t use a lot of product on my face. I also like to try different things out with my eyeshadow as I have many different colours, but today I went for a pretty shimmery pink as I think it goes with the autumn weather well.

So here’s my everyday makeup routine.

Products I used

As I said this is my everyday, go-to makeup routine. I change it up with the eyes for different occasions like when I’m going out I always add glitter, or sometimes I don’t wear eyeliner.

Be sure to keep an eye out for more looks.
